Do I need a Virginia Social Security disability lawyer?

Social Security disability claims may have a high rate of initial denial, but in a sense they are much easier to pursue than long-term disability claims with insurance companies. This is because the Social Security Administration (SSA) is an impartial federal body. Officials make decisions based on need. Long-term disability insurance companies are businesses. They make decisions based on their own advantage and focus on their profit margin.

You need someone on your team—a professional who knows what he or she is doing and who can fight for you. Our Virginia Social Security disability lawyers understand the workings of these companies, and we know how to fight for the justice you deserve and the result you need. If your insurance company requires you to pursue Social Security disability benefits as well—which most do—we can help you with this aspect of your case, too.
